Southport community station Mighty Radio is extending its coverage area, to allow listeners to listen for longer as they commute from Southport to/from areas such as Preston, Blackpool, Wigan, and Liverpool.
The increased coverage will be achieved by increasing the power output on the existing 107.9 FM transmitter, which has been used since the station launched on FM on the 1st April 2019. The frequency was previously used by commercial station Dune FM, prior to that station entering liquidation in 2012.
The planned power output increase is double the current power output, which will dramatically increase the coverage area. The move will also benefit those within the existing coverage area, as weak spots should be eradicated.
